With modest box office performance, the Tomb Raider movie released in 2018 seemed to have little chance of a sequel. Lara Croft will continue her adventures on the big screen, writes Deadline.com, with the same Alicia Vikander as the lead.
According to the site, MGM and Warner Bros. they called Amy Jump the new film screenwriter. Her name is linked to High-Rise (with Tom Hiddleston) and Free Fire (starring Brie Larson and Armie Hammer).
Under the direction of Roar Uthaug, the first Tomb Raider has earned a total of $ 294 million in a production budget of $94 million.It seems that GK Films, the production company, was convinced to do the sequel because of the high revenues earned outside the United States. Although Alicia Vikander was largely appreciated for the way she played Lara, many thought the film did not rise to the level she expected for an action movie.
Oscar winner for The Danish Girl, Vikander (Ex Machina, The Man From UNCLE, The Light Between Oceans, Tulip Fever) will star as Gloria Steinem in The Glorias: A Life on the Road, a life-inspired film the celebrated women’s rights activist.
